Why do We forget?
Every time I begin to tell this story, our story,
that question always comes to mind.
Even today, at the dawn of a new millennium,
I still have no answer.
We lost everything.
In an instant, what was ours was wrested away,
submerging us in the darkness of our own ignorance.
The details of our history are lost in its immensity, and so we are doomed to
repeat them, ignorant of our condition, while the world that we created
collapses around us.
Is this our punishment?
Or our salvation?
